Electric Rotisserie Like Baby George Are Compact

Delicious succulent meat and chicken every time you cook, has caused huge numbers of families to buy gas or electric rotisserie ovens for home use and benefit from healthy low fat eating as well.

One of the main decisions facing anyone buying a home rotisserie is whether to go the gas or electric route and there are plenty to choose from, whichever direction you take.

However, there are some differences between them including initial purchase price and running costs, which may make one more suited to your family than the other.

Gas Rotisseries

For mobile meals these is no choice, you just have to go for gas. They came along way before their compact electric rotisserie cousins and are commonly seen in restaurants and out at big barbeque parties. Though bear in mind if you go camping and have access to power, an electric rotisserie oven is small and portable.

This leads us nicely to the issue of size. Now gas barbeques are certainly the big brother of home rotisseries and not necessarily best suited to a smaller kitchen, where once on your worktop, there won’t be a lot of space left over to move! So unless you have at least a medium sized kitchen or an added utility area, think electric.

Running costs can be cheaper with a gas rotisserie depending on how often you use it. Electricity has increased in price and can prove costly at peak rimes, whereas gas is a predetermined price and costs the same to use no matter what time of day or night it is. That said, gas rotisseries are more expensive to buy initially than electric and come in at $70-$200 for a home use appliance, compared to $40-$100 for the electric version.

Gas rotisseries are faster to respond to increased or decreased temperatures. As soon as you turn the gas up or down the temperature will respond, whereas electric rotisserie take a little longer both to increase the heat and to reduce it.

If you have a large family or are planning to buy for an organization such as a charity or kids club, then a gas rotisserie is probably the more practical way to go.

Electric Rotisseries – Very Popular For Smaller Families?

Smaller, lighter and less expensive than a gas rotisserie, the new models of electric rotisseries are perfect for smaller houses and apartments and a great addition to your holiday home on the beach.

If space is tight in your kitchen take a look at either this baby George Foreman Rotisserie which only needs about 18in of counter space, or the Cuisinart Vertical Rotisserie because it really is compact and designed with space in mind. As touched on above, home electric rotisserie are also compact enough to take on camping trips provided the site gives you access to power for your caravan or camper.

Electric versions are ideal for lighter users who only intend occasional use, or for when the kids have left the nest and you are mostly cooking for one or two – until they start arriving with the grand-kids!

Keep in mind you can always upgrade later if you need more cooking power and this is a better idea than having a big gas rotisserie that takes up a lot of room and doesn’t get used frequently.
